De-Railed

If you have never been to the High Line, make sure you check it out if you ever visit New York City. It is essentially a linear park built on an elevated railroad spur along the west side of Manhattan. It is an excellent use of an abandoned section of transit, …

Not Quite Harvest

This photo is an improvement over the one I took earlier this year. It’s true that this moon is much closer to being full – and while this is great because it is reflecting more light from the sun, it is also not so great because it is reflecting more …

Canisbay Silhouette

Astrophotography is definitely not my strong suit. I took a number of photos last year, and only one of them really turned out the way I wanted it to. Attaining a crisp image is challenging because keeping the exposure too long will result in trails (because the Earth is turning, …

Eye In the Sky

There is a green space near my house that is cut off from most of the light sources in the city. It’s a great place to take photos of the sky at night since there is very little interference. To have such an ideal place to shoot allows for some …

San Fran At Night

It is rare for me to fall in love with a city. While I am not as well-traveled as some, I have visited a number of cities in different places around the world – but I have have never felt the pull that I did when I visited San Francisco. …

The Greatest Heights

I am well known for capturing images like this; I have quite a number, to be honest. I never get tired of this particular angle, though; and this time, I found a singular tree along the Spruce Bog Trail in Algonquin Park that was very interesting in the way that …

Misleading

The night that I took this photograph, the moon was closer to the Earth than it had been for a long time. I went for a walk to the river near my house to see what sort of images I could capture and decided to try and capitalize on the …

Peeking

Canisbay, a car-camping area located off of Highway 60 in Algonquin Park, is (in my opinion) one of the better-maintained camping areas in the park (not counting the interior). There are several trails between the main camping areas and the beaches /comfort stations. I took a stroll along one of …

Evening Glory

A number of years ago, I took a photograph of this lake with my EOS ELAN-7E. I have always wanted to take something similar, but since I have a young kiddo now, I can’t get out (and stay out) as late as I would like during a typical camping trip. …

Lookout Trail Panorama

This is my first real attempt to photo-stitch a landscape. This scene, consisting of four photos merged together, is the main overlook on the Lookout Trail in Algonquin Park. It is a fantastic vista and surely worth the hike (which isn’t really all that long – it is just all …

Fiery Morning

I visited Little Doe Lake in Algonquin Park with some friends over a long weekend in August, 2008. It rained like Noah was coming for most of the beginning of the trip. The foul weather kept a grip on us for most of the weekend, intermittently teasing us with warmth …

Behold Toronto

I had the opportunity to take some photos of the city in the early morning from a very unique vantage point. I was sharing the space with some other photographers, and I didn’t want to have the same images they did. I decided to take advantage of the fog to …
